The delivery of services to diverse groups of customers in the public sector remains a careful balance of resources, assets and capabilities harnessed to meet a broad range of outcomes that tax payers expect and demand. Finding the optimal balance between what must be delivered in a cost effective and quality driven manner and what can be sustained in the new economic context is a challenging process of prioritisation and finding new ways of defining what organisations can be accountable for delivering.

“Navigant’s public sector consultants have provided quality advice to Newham for a number of years. On this assignment Navigant was able to draw on its financial services professionals to deliver a unique perspective on Operational Excellence and Finance Transformation, alongside its existing knowledge of Newham. Navigant’s small team of experts worked with our people to draw out and document the opportunities available to us to transform our finance function. This collaborative approach, their frankness and objectivity in their role as a critical friend and their private sector experience was invaluable to us. Navigant continue to provide advice on robust project management discipline and rigour as we work towards full implementation of their recommendations.”
